Andrew would want us to fight on… in fact, he would insist on it. We must carry this battle forward, and we must stand shoulder to shoulder with the Tea Party and other patriotic American groups who are bound and determined to wrest this country from the bonds of tyranny.
God bless you, Andrew, and may God continue this country which you so dearly loved and fought for.
Celebrating George Washington’s birthday is an American tradition to honor our first president. Though Presidents’ Day is now the more commonly-used term, and has expanded to include all presidents, the legal term for this federal holiday remains Washington’s Birthday.
We honor President Washington, not because he was flawless; he was not. He was, however, the epitome of self-sacrifice—both as a soldier and a statesman. It was that sacrifice that helped make America what it was destined to become. We honor him because of what he accomplished and the manner in which he approached service to this nation: with a servant’s heart.
I am on record as acknowledging President Washington as my favorite Founder precisely because of that heart. He did not seek power. He accepted it reluctantly. He answered the call, offered himself up in the name of service, and helped to usher in a new day. At a time when he could have remained in office perpetually, as some expected, he chose to return to life as a citizen rather than seek a third term. He fulfilled his destiny, and his legacy is secure.
Sarah is feeling like me today… sick of the all the left-wing (and some right-wing) hypocrites charges of the Tea Party being “jihadis,” “suicide bombers,” “hobbits,” and “terrorists,” from everyone to the whiney little MSNBC & NY Times’ characters, all the way up to the Vice President. Enough is enough, especially when we were lectured by our Crybaby-In-Chief after the horrible Tucson inicident, that there needed to be a new civility…a “new tone,” as some called it. Yet, who is it that have been the biggest offenders of using this stupid, childisih, and truly insane name-calling when trying to demonize their opponents? The left, of course… trusty “Rules for Radicals” books in-hand.
Having said that, we have had our share of idiocy from some on our side of the aisle. Well, this “hobbit” has also had enough. Enough of opportunists like Romney and all others like him, only coming out to stake their spot when it’s politically expedient. There are a few out there who have “stuck their necks out a mile,” but that list doesn’t include the one person who actually claimed he had. To him, I say “YOU LIE!”
